* I gave each sentence its own paragraph
My critique of this paper isn't going to be very deep. Basically, I see it (the paper) as a waste of time and you won't miss anything by not reading it.
It has the heading "Psychiatric Aspects of General Medicine" which gives an idea where it is coming from. Both the authors are psychiatrists, with one being based on the Maudsley Hospital (where Simon Wessely & Trudie Chalder are based). It's basically a summary of the area a bit like what NICE did, but there are extra little bits of psychiatric speculation/selective referencing thrown in now and then.
Skimmed through it and saw "Effective treatments are available in the form of cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and graded exercise therapy (GET)..."
This article is pointless and a few decades behind.
It's amazing how clinicians supposedly involved in ME/CFS in some manner can go for decades without reading any research relevant to their practice. They're dinosaurs on the brink of extinction, and they don't even know it because they've had their heads buried in the sand the entire time.
